The details on porcelain veneers in Westland

Porcelain veneers in Westland are crafted from high-quality ceramic. They are super-thin shells that your dentist bonds in place with a special adhesive and hardening light.

To ensure veneers fit comfortably inside your mouth, Dr. Aylward or Dr. Carey first removes a thin portion of enamel from the front of the tooth. This resurfacing allows a good bond and makes the refurbishment permanent. The dentist then places temporary veneers and sends oral impressions and a care plan to the dental lab.

At the lab, a ceramist crafts the veneers one by one. He or she ensures that the shape and color of the veneers blend in with the rest of your smile. The idea is to make you look like you only better!

During the next dental visit, the doctor removes the temporaries and glues the new veneers in place. He uses the bonding cement to adjust the veneer color, and he adjusts the fit and bite, too.

After a few days, patients grow accustomed to how their porcelain veneers feel. The team at Carey & Aylward DDS encourage patients to brush twice a day with a soft brush and to floss carefully around their veneers. Also, the dentists like all their patients to come to the office twice a year for cleanings and check-ups so those refurbished smiles stay bright and healthy. With routine care and gentle eating habits (don't chew ice cubes or peanut brittle), porcelain veneers last 10 to 15 years or even longer says the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
